Late-Night Hosts Slam Sean Hannity Over Michael Cohen Connection

Late-Night Hosts Slam Sean Hannity Over Michael Cohen Connection

He insinuated in another drawing that the recent fire at Trump Tower was done to burn evidence in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation and that Russian President Vladimir Putin is colluding with Trump in Syria.

And Hannity was taking withering criticism for not disclosing his relationship with Cohen to viewers even while using his show to repeatedly and vehemently criticize the federal raid on Cohen's office and home, as The Post's Paul Farhi reported.

After last night's show, it seemed there was another contender for that title.

"Michael Cohen has never represented me in any matter", Hannity tweeted after Cohen's lawyers identified him as the third unnamed client.

"Which, even for Sean Hannity is pretty shady", Noah said. "They'll be like 'drink tummy tea, by the way, I'm sponsored by tummy tea'". And, if no money was exchanged but the men did have a business relationship, was there some other sort of payback offered by Hannity to Cohen? "You were in a tough position because A: You had to talk about Cohen and B: You didn't want the fact that you had spoken with him to be revealed".

"Pro tip for the president", Colbert also offered, "when your lawyer needs a lawyer, you need a lawyer". When reached for comment by the Atlantic, Toensing, who along with her husband has appeared as a guest on Hannity's show, admitted that she had "at that time" represented the Fox News host, but would not say whether she still does. He reappeared slouching in an armchair, drinking a glass of red wine, rubbing his stomach, seemingly experiencing pure bliss. "Jon Stewart, after the show I'm going to come over and we're just going to spoon".

Cohen's lawyers called the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid "completely inappropriate and unnecessary" and said it resulted in the "seizure of protected attorney-client communications between a lawyer and his clients".

Hannity spent the majority of the hour attacking ex-FBI director James Comey, calling him "the most petty human being on earth".

Watch Yankees vs. Red Sox
Later, the Red Sox appeared to take retribution when Joe Kelly hit Austin with a 98-mph fastball. Austin did seem to land a blow in the ensuing scrum on Boston third-base coach Carlos Febles.

Suresh Raina to miss CSK's next two games due to calf injury

Siria, allerta sulle rotte aeree nel Mediterraneo orientale
Da parte sua, Mosca ha posto il veto alla bozza Usa per istituire un nuovo meccanismo d'inchiesta indipendente. Così il presidente degli Stati Uniti , Donald Trump , su Twitter, a proposito della situazione in Siria .

You know, for asking questions. "And it's not your baby".

The flip side to this is that payment - as Hannity suggested on his radio show - does not automatically mean privilege. Always the slimy lawyer, Goodman then turns it on the two guys, offering, "First things first, you're gonna put a dollar in my pocket, both of you". "And when it does, the left will cheer because extremism in the pursuit of Trump is no vice according to them".

The real consequences may just be embarrassment for Hannity and a deluge of unwanted publicity. "This is insane, Cohen only has two other clients and all he does for them is pay off mistresses, which raises the obvious question: who did Sean Hannity have sex with?" While Cohen had sought to keep the name private, U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood ordered Cohen's lawyer Todd Harrison to make the disclosure.

In this courtroom sketch, President Donald Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen, seated second from right at table, is flanked by his own attorneys Todd Harrison, right, and Stephen Ryan, as they listen to Assistant U.S. Attorney Tom McKay, standing left, in court in New York, April 16, 2018.

I would guess Cohen claimed Hannity as a client to protect any notes he might have taken about their conversations. "I never retained him, received an invoice, or paid legal fees".

But Hannity said he asked Cohen "brief" legal questions, adding that may have handed Cohen $10 and said, "I want privilege to cover me about this conversation".

Kimmel also addressed Hannity's assertion that he never discussed anything involving a "third-party" with Cohen.
